According to a recent article on Fleetwatch written by Murray Price (managing director of Eqstra Fleet Management and Logistics); junk status will put added pressure to the fleet operators to contain costs even more. https://fleetwatch.co.za/junk-status-puts-increased-pressure-on-fleet-operators/ Prices of new vehicles, fuel prices, vehicle parts and insurance will increase due to our recent downgrade. Fleet operators can contain costs by making sure fleets are managed efficiently and that the Globaltrack services are used to review driver behaviour, efficient vehicle servicing and maintenance.
It is important to know how to take best care of your fleet now to get the most value out of them tomorrow.
Ensuring that your fleet is regularly serviced can save you cost on fuel and improve the efficiency of each vehicle.
You can start by ensuring that you:
- Educate everybody that works in the your fleet about the safety features of vehicles
- Do not try and cut cost by skipping a service
- Have a fleet that is always road worthy to avoid breakdowns.
- Put in place a maintenance schedule and make sure it is updated regularly.
In conclusion, it is pertinent to take stock of current procedures to identity ways to promote fuel and vehicle maintenance efficiency.
